Torture - I prefer the writing styles of Christina Dodd & Stephanie Laurens. Ms. Woodiwiss uses five words for every one, as if blocking a script, leaving nothing to the imagination of the reader. I feel quite condescended to. Wonderful story, but a shame it's written this way. This one should be speed-read if at all.
honestly I am having a hard time reading it. It is very detailed and some information I just don't enjoy reading about for example fabric and designs of furniture. But I am determined to get through it, maybe. It just isn't my cup of tea.
